    The Mojo and SL are supposed to be 650b ready. I'm not sure if early Mojo's are, but I'm not aware of swing arm differences that would negate 27.5 wheels.

    HD 140 is the only official 650B frame, but Mojo, Mojo SL and HD160 are with a shim in the rear shock to limit travel

    SLR clearances are said to be too tight for 650b. As it is, even a Quasi-Moto doesn't leave a whole lot of room to spare on a Mojo SL.

    This is asked so often, maybe I should put these 650b references in my signature....

    Fox, RockShox, DT-Swiss, Schwalbe and Others Develop 650b gear | The Straight Dirt | MountainBike.com
    Ibis has certified 650b for the Mojo HD140 - Mtbr Forums

    Mojo HD 650b. The HD140 clears 650bx2.3 with no custom modification, and is sanctioned by Ibis. The HD160 requires custom shock bottom travel limit shims.

    Mojo C, SL 650b conversions with required custom shock shim limiting bottom travel clears up to 2.3 tires. (SL-R clears only small volume 650b tires.)

    Shock mount offset bushings. Lowers the BB 1/4 inch, and reduces bottom travel tire clearance. There are other options if you search google. These were least expensive and are well made. The HD has 40mm and 22mm wide shock mounts, both with 8mm shock mount bolt holes. It took 3 weeks for the two I bought on eBay to arrive from Poland.

    Thank you for this. Thinking of going 650b on my Mojo SL, and have been overwhelmed by all the posts/threads on the subject. Was clear that the HD's are 650b-ready, less certain about my SL.
